Albany, N.Y. – Hundreds of participants will walk, run or volunteer in the final weekend of the year to take part in the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life events.

All proceeds collected are directed to supporting the organization’s involvement in helping people stay well, get well and find cures. Funds raised support programs and services for patients and their families nearest the track location. The funding helps support programs like The American Cancer Society’s Look Good Feel Better, which helps provides cancer patients with beauty techniques to help them cope and feel good about themselves during radiation, chemotherapy and other cancer treatments.

The event is a community celebration that allows volunteers, walkers, families, caregivers, survivors, schools and companies to walk or run around a local track throughout the time period designated. Candlelight vigils are also held in honor of cancer victims and survivors.
